SDH -

You already know how much I appreciate what your son went through. Thank you - and him - again.

The Leapfrog 18?? - you will have to post some snobby, high falootin' tasting notes when you crack that one. This may be the week I crack my bottle of Lagavulin 16 year old double matured. Clouding things and complicating that decision is the bottle of 1983 Port Ellen.

Pretty much the same sentiments back atcha - (except anything to do with the Patriots...how bout them Cowboys!!)

Seriously, I wish a Happy Thanksgiving to you, yours, and everyone else in here.

Even skies......

When it comes to high-falooting, snobbish tasing notes, you're looking in the wrong place.

When it comes to booze, my reviews will mostly consist of observances such as:
"Holy shit, that was freakin' amazing!"
or
"Plese shoot me now, anything else will be settling"
or
"I wouldn't share that even if my dying father begged me for a taste"
or
"I now know what rat's piss must taste like"

Never being one for technical breakdowns, I pretty much stick to the initial gut reaction.

My bad--I drove off a number of posters, but didn't mean this to get lumped in here, MJ; you have a great thanksgiving...I'll take my lumps elsewhere.

No, it was your little tag team and the very end, sweet 'ums. Good job! The Poe phrase Tuchman used for Proud Tower is so appropriate here in the decaying forum. (Someone get the high pressure hose out, STAT!)

While from a proud tower in the town (forum)
Death looks gigantically down

And remember, it's beneath your dignity to respond to certain posters. And I, stupid person that I am, thought you would have some integrity and apologize to Ring. What was that about being a 'lady's man'? You can scratch your dangling balls w/ impunity now that almost all the women have left the forum.

Oh good grief; couldn't you just give me a hearty "fuck off" or "blow me"?

I will say this--you do have me beat in the whining department. I didn't think it was possible.

to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly...

And I am without sin? So only those without sin can speak? Or are you Mt:18:15 call?

Thanks for the clip.

I hope it is true to the posters in my mind. I would love if they stayed away. Actually it's true. I am a leper so perimeter please. It does make me sad to see you put yourself on the list. We had some fun BD. Hopefully again.

To live well in spite of injustice is all I am shooting for...

Hey, if I didn't have to use the handicap doohickey, I'd open the door for you, BD; last time I used the handle, I was in bed for two days (no, not cause it was a gal).

I still open doors, and not just for women, and I step aside to let others pass by, but I get mightily annoyed if my courtesy is taken for granted. Just another of my multitudinous character flaws no doubt.

You know, there was a time such a post would have released a flood of self-flagellating drivel on my part...I think back on my first few yrs here, and have to laugh at all, really. And now? Well, I suppose I really don't have the patience for it all--or at least my lame attempts to placate everyone, and in my condition, my crankiness just comes through more and more.

I still like to think I am able to meet the majority of posters half way--but I suppose more and more it's half-way to my World-view or forgot it about it.

You, elb, BD and some others should probably be very frightened by that fact, eh? I mean, you really want to align yourself with the likes of a powerless former PM? Hmmm, the similarities to Winnie abound in this web-based farce, come to think of it. Perhaps it's just post Gallipoli, and I have decades to rebuild my image?

Nah--I am a little too tired out for that sort of long haul; post WWII? Only a few short yrs and I can be back on top, right?

;)

I guess it can take a little while to establish some sort of 'identity' here - and of course there's every chance that the identity we have here is completely at odds with the identities we roll out for colleagues, family and so on. There's no obligation to set your identity in stone - either here or elsewhere. It's a rare person indeed, I'd venture, who is the 'same' to everyone he or she meets.

Even you and I have had to work towards the, as some would see it, cosy relationship we enjoy today. I'm sure you'll recall how we had to go off-forum to iron out a few differences and misunderstandings in the early days. It proved to be worth making that effort.

After all this time we both now realize that there are always two ways of looking at something - our way and the wrong way.

(Do I have to point out that that's a joke to avoid having humorless overly literal bozos jumping on my head?)

Yeah, I think I worked a bit too hard at pleasing folks, early on, and lets face it, that became a self-reinforcing, feel good approach. On the other hand, I think that most posters hereabouts have a pretty fair sense of what makes me tick, what ticks me off, and so on...It being my first (and only) effort at communication via the web on a regular basis, it did take a while, as you note, to find my voice as it were, for good or bad (some of both, no doubt).

Jeeezz, enough with my self relective blather; in the "real" world I'll have to send along some more of our amazing floral oddities for you to enjoy...
